Boost Local Lëtzebuerg

Initiative phase: Well established and running

Let's take back control of our local economy!

Boost Local Lëtzebuerg

Boost Lokal Lëtzebuerg is the first Luxembourg edition of Start-up de Territoire, an initiative that exists throughout France and aims to bring to light entrepreneurial and job-creating solutions to local social and environmental challenges. Based on collective intelligence, it mobilises citizens and brings together all the players in a given area (360°).

The stages :

1) Ideation - Share your hopes and dreams for your region

2) Co-creation - Co-create a local solution at our creativity evening

3) Development - Work with your project team to develop and launch your solution, supported by our coaches and training workshops.

4) Connect - Take part in events with the wider community to help your project grow.

Boost Lokal is initially being developed in an initial region comprising the canton of Capellen and the municipalities of Helperknapp, Strassen, Bertrange and Reckange-sur-Mess. From September 2024, the process will be extended to the east of Luxembourg, around the canton of Grevenmacher.

In the first region, the ideation phase will run until April 2024, before moving on to the co-creation phase with our big co-creativity evening which will take place in May 2024 and which will allow the citizens of the region to participate in a thematic table to create together an entrepreneurial solution to the challenge of the territory identified at this table.
